Presentación

Currently, consumers are becoming more inclined towards eco-friendly packaging, but also governments are imposing strict regulations to promote the circular economy and reduce the environmental impact of packaging.

These policies are causing a series of changes in plastic companies towards the development of more sustainable solutions that are recyclable, reusable, that incorporate recycled material but also towards the use of alternative materials such as paper and cardboard to obtain food and drink packaging.

Paper is a highly desirable material for a wide range of applications in packaging sector due to their advantages of low cost, lightweight, excellent mechanical properties, biodegradability, and renewability. However, it is a porous material, and it lacks from barrier properties, sealability and resistance to water and grease. Lamination and the use of coatings are commonly used methods to improve these properties. Thus, it is common to use polyethylene as laminates, but the recyclability of these structures presents a significant challenge. Regarding coatings, there are existing alternatives such as paraffin-based waxes, silicones or fluorocarbons (PFCs), which provide water repellence, but do not solve the recycling problem either and add, in some cases, an additional problem in terms of health and impact in the environment. Thus, there is an urgent need to address the above challenges by developing closed-loop approaches for water and grease resistant paper and to provide oxygen and water vapour barrier properties without affecting recyclability.

This webinar will identify the main trends and uses of fiber-based packaging, its main advantages and limitations, and the opportunity to use coatings to overcome these drawbacks. Within these, plastic and free-plastic coatings according to the SUP Directive will be discussed as well as the main properties they can provide and their improved EoL.
